Re: Watches you've forgotten that you ever owned

Well, I was once the proud owner of a lovely Cartier watch, back in the late 80's/90's A couple, where I worked, called of their wedding as they had split.

1942 Omega BUMPER ( my Dad's birth year)

Re: Misaligned?

Thank you Amor.

That make sense and I appreciate your informed response. I have struggled to find a direct, flat on image. Your explanation has put my mind at ease - I found it hard to believe they'd all be misaligned, but when somebody plants a seed.....
